Saving real-time data

Go to the next issue (open or closed)
Go to the next open issue

From my observations, Multicharts overwrites Interactive Brokers real-time data when "download missing historical data" is on. Support has asked me to open a ticket in the PM group.
1. From my tests, the real-time data and the backfill data back test differently.
2. It creates in my opinion needless backfills that lead to pacing violations.
3. I believe keeping the real-time data is the industry practice. I can provide other vendor's charts to show that.

Steps to reproduce this issue

IB datafeed does not provide realtime minute data.
In MultiCharts realtime minutes are built from ticks.
They are not saved to the database because the bar can be different from the actual historical minute bar.
But IB provides historical minute data.
So MultiCharts requests the minute data from IB server next time you request this information.
That is why the exported data is slightly different.
Export1 is realtime data built from ticks.
Export2 is the historical minute data from IB server.
